Shishi dog meets the crowd.

The Shishi dog in the Japanese culture wards off evil spirits and welcomes good spirits. The shishi dog dance is done at special social events in Okinawa. You can watch this special dance done by extremely talented martial artist at two cultural parks in Okinawa. I think you should travel to learn more about others cultures.
